The Polybius Conspiracy
Showcase is a new outlet for limited-run audio, and this, their second featured series, has made a very good beginning. The Polybius Conspiracy investigates the unkillable urban legend of a 1980s-era arcade game (never actually proven to exist and even debunked by Snopes), which is said to have affected players in unusual ways, and perhaps formed part of a government experiment. This docudrama series explores the story of Polybius, so far as that is possible, and specifically examine the claims of one source, Bobby Feldstein, who says he played the game and was then abducted as a teenager. Expertly rendered and absorbing.
